Great place to stay in a special place in Israel. The host was extremely friendly and helpful in organising walks and explaining all the ins and out. The hostel is very clean with nice lounge and terrace to hang out. We stayed in the annexe, a bit away from the main hostel, which was quiet and cosy.

I stayed in this hostel 4 nights and loved it from the first sight - the common room is clean and cosy with lots of books and games. There is a small clean kitchen and rooms next to it. Rooms are clean and beds are comfortable. This hostel is really small and that's why it's perfect to get to know... More

Already when I arrived, the welcome was very personal and immediately made you feel like you arrive in a flatshare. Everyone I met who works at the Green Backpackers is very helpful, open and friendly. Also, it is one of the cleanest hostels I have ever been to and I felt like in my own flat.

Stayed two nights and found a great home away from home. Clean place to stay, well decorated. Great people and vibes in the common area and also very helpful showing us where to go for hikes, a free sunset tour, and an amazing star show at night in the middle of the desert. Highly recommended.

If we would all embrace the green style of living like the green backpackers hostel, the world would most likely be a better place. I've never seen recycling in such excellence - and I am German.
